    LibreLink for LibreOffice

    LibreLink

    This is the first Public release for testing!

    With LibreLink, you can link parameters and variables into Libre Office and Alibre Design.
    LibreLink is available in 15 languages.

    Info:
    The installation program integrates Libre Link directly into the add-on programs:

    David -- Is there a method to define the units being used (other than the defauilt "cm") with LibreLink? Is there an English languare instruction set for LibreLink? Irrational minds want to know... ;-)

    Your program sounds great.
    While looking at your website, some of text was in German (I think), and could not read it all;). Is there another site that's all in English?

    I hear you Lew. I was stationed in Germany when I was in the Army, the years since I too have loosed my German. I guess that what old age does to one (oh my aching bones LOL).

    Hi RockNut,

    No worries ;) Website and post just got an update.
    We're sorry. "Entschuldigung"

    Since the website is mostly for the German speaking audience, only the page content is english.
    The rest of the homepage https://alibre.ch/ is for Alibre reselling purposes in switzerland.

    But my real question is, Is there an English language "Instruction Guide" for LibreLink? I suspect that there are (shall we say) operational aspects and controls that are not immediately obvious to me.

    The units are taken from the Alibre file, so if you have set the units in feet it should automaticly be set in feet in LibreLink.

    We are currently looking at the option of adding the ability to change G Variables. It would help if we would hear some thoughts of others.

    ATM There aren't any instructions in german nor in english. It's not planned to create one right now but for later versions it will come.

    Please understand that I have a number of (shall we say) "serious design tools" written in Libre Office Calc that "lose their link" to the formal documentation so created with my current tools. These are tools such as designing and documenting things such as: compression springs, hairpin torsion springs, sprocket & chain drives, and the like. Being able to (if you will) more formally "link" such data into a Project Package would fall into the "very good thing" category.

    Hi cadtec, do you have some news about this? Also I do like your web page. Is it feasible in English version?

    I've installed LibreLink and LibreOffice. Can someone give he an overview how to use it? I named the spreadsheet the same as my model, how is the link established? What is the format for the spreadsheet?
    Thanks
